    If you had $28K to spend on a work vehicle, what would be the best bang for your buck?

    The vehicle(car or truck) must be brand new, seat at least 4 comfortably, have driver and passenger side airbags as well as having bluetooth/hands free.

    I like our Forester. All wheel. Roomy. Respectable mileage. Nice features and about that price range.

    Wish the warranty was better. And that full synthetic oil change price is a bit hard to swallow. But the upkeep on our last Forester was otherwise extremely low and reliable. (knock on wood)

    I don't own one but I'd be tempted to look at a Jetta TDI.

    Define "work vehicle"
    Do you mean something to transport yourself to work and back or do you mean a vehicle that will be an integral part of your work?


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I work from home, so the vehicle is to travel around my territory.

    I just got done car shopping a few months ago and landed on the FR-S/BRZ because seating was not an issue but along the way I flirted with the Impreza WRX and Nissan Juke for a solid mix of performance and seating space.

    A friend who owns multiple dealerships here in the area (Dodge/Jeep, Ford, Volkswagon, Hyundai, Subaru) has said time and again that Hyundai is easily the best car being made today. Most reliable and economical by far from his point of view.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    2014 Ford F150. Can get quite a deal on them right now. Tons of leg room in the back seat. Plus, it is ALWAYS handy to have a truck.

    Can you bank what you don't spend?
